Video: Key Glock – “Q-Dogz

The Paper Route Empire Hitmaker Salutes His Cutthroat Fraternity Brothers, Continuing His May Hot Streak With His 3rd New Video This Month


The Video:
Specializing in cutthroat flexes and no-frills rap bangers, Key Glock has carved out a lane of his own in the rap game. Affirming his crew’s status as the finest in South Memphis and beyond, the Paper Route Empire rapper shares the video for “Q-Dogz,” his recent single. Over production as haunting as his lyrics, which include a shout out to historically Black fraternity Omega Phi Psi, Glock puts those beneath him in their place, paying them no mind as he knows no one can compete on his level: “Cappin ’bout bodies they ain’t got none / These b*tches actin’ like they ain’t got no flops / Get back gang you know the outcome.” Rarely one to take his mind off his goals, he later admits: “Get money and my daughter only thing that make me cool off.”

In the video, Key Glock channels the “Q-Dogz” mentality, both literally and figuratively, posted up with his brothers and a pack of pitbulls. The crew stands unfazed, ready to pounce on anyone who tries to get in their way.

“Q-Dogz” is the third single that Glock released this month, following previous May singles “F*ck Around & Find Out” and “The Greatest,” a Bandplay-produced banger. The new singles and music videos arrive on the heels of “Let’s Go (Remix),” which reunites Key Glock and Young Dolph over triumphant production. Peaking at #59 on the Billboard Hot 100, Dolph’s remix added fuel to the fire of “Let’s Go,” which was already one of the biggest hits of Key Glock’s career. The song racked up hundreds of millions of streams, reached the Top 5 on Urban Radio, and has earned play in sports stadiums across the globe. The song inspired a cinematic video, directed by Chris Villa, a 7-minute epic for which the young rapper learned fight choreography and did his own stunts (10 million views to date). The song is a mainstay on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart (#20 peak) and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (#20 peak), and spent nine weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. “Let’s Go” is the standout track from Glockoma 2 (Deluxe), an expansion of his February 2023 album Glockoma 2, which spent 8 weeks on the Billboard 200, peaking at #13. Last month, Key Glock united with Brazilian producer Alok, one of the world’s most popular EDM artists, for a high octane “Let’s Go” (Alok Remix).

In April, Key Glock performed for the first time at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, headlining a bill that also featured Young Nudy and BigXThaPlug. The young rapper sold out the show, performing his hits in front of 10,000 adoring fans, and even inviting a lucky few onstage to rap along with songs by Key Glock and Young Dolph. The Red Rocks performance continued momentum that started in 2023 with Glock’s fast-selling SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop Nation Presents: Key Glock – Glockoma Tour,” with support from XXL Freshman TiaCorine, Dallas riser BigXThaPlug, and his PRE associates including Kenny Muney and Jay Fizzle.

Now with more than 15.4 million monthly listeners on Spotify, multiple Hot 100 hits to his name, and 59k tickets sold in 2023 alone, Key Glock is on the brink of taking his no-holds-barred Memphis sound to the mainstream. Stay tuned for much more music from Key Glock in May.
